Navjot Singh Sidhu also called Amarinder Singh a "negative force" and accused him of stalling Justice and development of Punjab.
Chandigarh: Punjab Congress president Navjot Singh Sidhu, on Wednesday, called former Chief Minister of the state, Amarinder Singh, "an arm-twisted, ED controlled BJP loyal Chief Minister of Punjab, who sold the interests of Punjab to save his skin." The comment came minutes after Amarinder Singh announced his decision on forming a new party in Punjab.
Sidhu also called Amarinder Singh a "negative force" and accused him of stalling Justice and development of Punjab.
In another post, the Punjab Congress Chief told Amarinder Singh that the last time when he formed his party, he lost the ballot, garnering 856 votes. Sidhu added that people of Punjab are "again waiting" to punish Amarinder for compromising on the interests of the state.
Responding to Sidhu's comments, Captain Amarinder Singh, at a press conference on Wednesday, said, "He (Sidhu) knows nothing, talks too much, doesn't have brains. I never spoke to Amit Shah or Dhindsa over this, but I'll. I want to be strong to fight Congress, Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). I'll talk to them, we'll put up a united front to defeat them."
Amarinder Singh also said wherever Navjot Singh Sidhu fights from, in the upcoming Assembly election, his party will also contest from that seat. The state will go to polls early next year.
The ex-Punjab Chief Minister also informed that he alongwith 25-30 people will be meeting Union Home Minister Amit Shah and discuss on the Centre's three farm laws.
Earlier in the day, Wednesday, Amarinder Singh said he would announce the name and the symbol of his new party once the Election Commission of India (ECI) clears it.
"When the time comes we will fight all 117 seats, whether adjustment seats or we contest on our own," Amarinder Singh added.
